Every Sunday I go and meet a group of other political dweebs and do texting and phonebanking for Sanders. Last Sunday I called 100 people in Iowa and texted another 2000. I collected a lot of information for the campaign and even had a few good conversations with some Trump supporters where I think I got through to them enough to where they might take a look at Sanders' ideas.

Does anyone else do it? It is extremely easy, you can learn how in about 30 minutes just watching a couple videos on the campaign website. Texting is even easier and also less socially intense than calling. If you'd rather do it in a group (I prefer this), there are almost certainly people in your city who are hosting phonebanking parties regularly.

Is anyone here curious about it? If anyone wants to do this but doesn't know how to start, I am happy to give information and help out. We're all in this together.

I gave him money and have convinced my family to convince others, which is about the extent of my involvement probably. I don't have phonebanking or texting in me.

I understand the hesitancy but I was surprised at how enjoyable the experience was. I think it helped being in a group of other people doing it so you could take a break, drink some beer, make jokes about dumb responses, etc

Quoted from Pertti Susilainen:

Basically yeah, for the most part it's collecting information. You talk to people, ask who they are thinking about supporting, ask if they have second choices, and then if they're open to continuing the discussion you can ask them what issues are most important to them, which issues do they wish that candidates were talking more about, that kind of thing. You also give information about the election and also can flag their file if they will need help getting to the polls or something like that.

Just remembered a line from Les Miserables where Victor Hugo says something like "In the end they did not rip up the paving stones and throw them at the police" and I think we should be taking notes from the French, who know how to have a good riot.

I completely agree. I've been donating a bunch but to my great shame I haven't done any volunteering yet.

You live in an important state, so there's still a lot of time for you to make a difference. And I feel like in-person work is much much more valuable. Just keep telling everyone you know about why you support him.

If people are ready to discuss it with me, I talk about my dad who died of treatable cancer when I was a child, mostly because we didn't have health insurance until he qualified for disability. At which point it was too late to save his life. Maybe you have a similar story. It doesn't have to be so tragic, but yeah, that helps. I know my dad would approve of me telling his story if it helped other people avoid the same fate as him.

Tom Steyer is blowing up the radio in California with ads about how his dad was a nazi prosecutor at Nuremberg or whatever.

biden is the definition of "ok boomer". It's like the phrase was invented specific for and about him.

Best part of this primary cycle is every time James Carville comes on to froth at the mouth whenever Bernie is doing good.
